of your policies, that was a very open-handed thing to do in our own much smaller way luxor cab also contributed to free rides that evening. at a time when other transportation services were doubling or tripling or quadrupleling their rates. offering free and safe and sober rides to reduce the incidents of drunk-driving. unfortunately only a few dozen people actually took advantage of that service, the free rides that evening. and we certainly look forward to expanding it in the future. and we'll do so next time on st. patty's day. >> how busy was your dispatch line? >> we were utterlying overwhelmed for almost the entire evening. >> thank you. next item. >> moving on item 8 is the citizens' advisory committee report.

you. >> good afternoon again directors charles rathborn on behalf of luxor cab. i would like to submit our complaint against uber. uber is installing their own dispatch equipment in our cabs without our permission. the equipment consists of a smartphone modified to acts a dispatch terminal. the terminal serves only uber's customers and not the general public. you cannot for instance order a cab using uber's equipment. but the unlicensed dispatch firms do not. unlicensed companies undermine our ability to respond to service requests through our own already strained dispatch service to the extent that our drivers are working with the unlicensed dispatch, they are unavailable to respond to service requests made through our own licensed dispatch. is the operation safe? does the device cause more driver distraction than already exists of a complex work environment of a taxi cab? what about the fare? we know that uber always charges more than the meters fare. however, their transactions are totally invisible to us. i am running out of time, so i will just say you should not turn
